Banzai, my friend, that is FLO!

And even the Pit Stop at Sweden! :hahaha:

from the intro



Part of the 'Kiwi Haka' Maori cultural show, at the top of the Skyline Gondola in Queenstown, New Zealand. The show included traditional Maori songs, dances and stories, with this shot taken during the actual 'Haka'.

You're right, Neobie. The 1st clue is near the southern end of the bridge; near the Park Hyatt hotel. The white round cement area matches.

I think you're right again, Neobie. It's bungee jumping; no helmets  :jumpy:

Melody's area matches with tourists
Sahran, a woman, & Sharon are ready. No helmets in bungee jumping. Yellow harnesses match.

RANDOMITIES


Singapore. Probably stock footage.


Different shots of the sun setting.


Air Asia landing. Could this be Jakarta?


Probably Malaysia? Reminders of the Manukan Island Roadblock in TAR4.

:blume: May be Sarawak - Iban Etnics


Various animals from around the world. Any clues?


Jacqueline (Philippines) looks shocked (or hilarious). "They're gone already?"


Could be Berjaya Times Square, could be Menara KL. I've got no clue.


Another gut reaction for Melaka, but no proof yet.

:blume: My guess - Finish Line - A-Famosa, Melaka


Heck, I don't even know who this is.


Boat from who knows where?

:blume: May be Boat ride - Kuching, Sarawak (Rejang River)


Red Fort, Delhi. Could be recycled.


In the reflection there's a little TAR flag stuck into the ground.


Turkey and South Africa, stolen from TAR: Real.


Maoris in New Zealand.

Before applying to work on the series, Zabrina had to consult her TARA team mate and friend Joe Jer first.

“I had to ask her permission because once I work on the Race, that would end the possibility of us ever being on All Stars .... if there ever is one-lah.”

According to that article, Zabrina can't be in All-Stars. Hmm.

Past winners in Amazing Race 1 to 10 were not given much consideration for AR11 All-Stars. The only ones who were on that show were Uchenna and Joyce. I expect that the same would apply to ARA All-Stars and few winners would be picked. AR11 was treated as mostly a popularity contest with marginal racers like Dave and Mary making it and many other worthy teams not making it.

Caught it on the Filipino news last week: Aubrey Miles is now a mom...

In other news (TARA2 though), Marc and Rovilson are staring down at me at every street corner, every fast-food stall, and every department stall in the entirety of the Philippines. There's no escape, people!

My apologies to you, Neobie. No one needs to see that! :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

Also sad to see SanFran no longer a couple. I did like them.
Just here to visit.

I recently visited my sister in Devonport New Zealand, home of the NZ Royal Navy and also the most diabolical episode of any Amazing Race ever. Yes, the one thing I wanted to do in Devonport was to see the famous tree where that swing used to be. It is amazingly close to the ferry terminal. If a team turned left out of the terminal the swing was less than 200 yards away. Alternatives may be up to 4 miles away within Devonport. There is a horizontal branch of the tree where there are some wear marks at exactly the distance apart that a swing should be, but there is no other evidence that a swing was once there.
